    Global Cleaning Services Industry Trends 

    • The cleaning industry has matured in tandem with other FM services in developed markets such as Europe and the US.
    • In developing regions janitorial services industry trends related to bundling, outsourcing and value-based approaches are still emerging. But within 2018, they will gain strong footholds.
    • Businesses are making huge investments in the proper maintenance of workspaces to ensure an eco-friendly and healthy working ecosystem for their workforce.
    • Market players are embracing the concept of green cleaning which incorporates the usage of natural products such as baking soda, vinegar, and lemons, among others, to clean the office premises. 
    • Rising environmental issues along with the negative effects of using chemical-based products that contain allergens and carcinogens have influenced market players to reinvent their portfolios.

    Global Cleaning Services Market: Drivers and Constraints 


    • Macroeconomic Background: High inflation rates in developing countries directly impact the rising demand for wages. Rises in labor costs are crucial for the cleaning services industry as they drive costs in a direct proportion.
    • Outsourcing vs. Insourcing: Despite the difficult global economic conditions, outsourcing of cleaning services is the preferred model compared to performing such services in-house.
    • The global cleaning industry continues to be profitable, mainly riding upon the growth of the healthcare industry.
    • Vacancy rates have a direct impact on procuring cleaning services for commercial spaces. Vacancy rates are on the decline, providing the impetus for the cleaning and janitorial services industry.
    • In a short period, new technologies, more interoperability among different cleaning equipment, and more players in the market have resulted in higher growth. This evolution of cleaning equipment has become an advantage for cleaning services in the retail industry, which helps complete the task quickly with limited resources.
    • Green cleaning products and procedures will have a higher impact in the future. Hence, businesses should focus on going green and realizing the benefits therein.


    • Labor costs generally represent 80% of total operational costs. In addition to the native workers, most of the laborers are immigrants and the regulations associated with such workers play a major role in managing cleaning services effectively in a particular country.
    • Britain leaving the European Union (EU) may have negative consequences on the labor supply and thereby poses a threat of increasing labor costs.
    • The emergence of automated cleaning robots that utilize artificial intelligence (AI) to do housekeeping chores is posing a challenge for the players.

    COVID-19 Impact on Marketing for Cleaning Services

    The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the concerns for hygiene and cleanliness at the workspaces. The easing of lockdown regulations and steady rebounding of the global economy has highlighted the importance of hygiene procedures for offering safety to the customers and employees. 

    Businesses are scaling up the frequency of on-premise sanitization to check and avoid potential contagion. Besides, governments across the globe have imposed various SOPs/guidelines for businesses to adhere to for alleviating the threat of subsequent waves of the COVID-19 crisis. 

    The industrial and commercial establishments have been instructed to conform to these guidelines to ensure the safety of their workforce and prevent any legal action.
